Xero Heavy Metal / Co. Limerick

Editor Notes:

XERO are a Limerick based outfit that basically started out back in 2016 as a duo, Mike Carroll & Dave Bourke, who set about writing metal tunes to suit their own tastes. Enlisting the vocal and recording talents of Wouter Landzaat (VALHALLA, LIFE’S ELECTRIC) they set about crafting their first set of tracks ‘Edge of Light’ and Edge Of Darkness’.

Using these tracks to help gain interest in the band, the pair set about enlisting a proper gigging and recording line-up to bring their vision to full fruition. April 2017 saw the band release their debut full length album “Beyond The Glass” via Spotify and Youtube.

Official band Biography…

XERO play heavy metal as they imagine it should sound. Drawing influence from their favourite metal bands and moulding this inspiration into a new sound of their own, every track stands out as something different. They take so much influence from other sources that their music spans a huge variety of genres. Their first album consists of 12, each one different from the last. Southern rock, fuck, groove, classic rock, grunge, thrash metal, doom, hardcore soft rock, and prog are all drawn upon to compile a musical collection which gives a great variety yet still remains true to what is close to the band’s hearts.
